Powered air respirator
22 September 2016
Respiratory expert Scott Safety has introduced Duraflow, a lightweight and ergonomically designed powered air respirator (PAR) with real-time air flow control technology.
The new system is designed to give complete wearer assurance of respiratory protection to focus on the job rather than the protective equipment itself, in a multitude of hazardous situations and industries.
According to Scott Safety, it brings to the market a reliable, durable powered air product at an affordable price for those currently using respirators with filters fitted directly to the mask (negative pressure mode).
Duraflow’s automatic monitoring features are said to ensure the airflow rate is maintained at precisely the correct level to afford protection for the user. Visual and audible diagnostics alert the user of any drop in airflow below the required level or when the battery needs re-charging. Two high energy density battery options are available – standard and extended duration, which can be selected depending on shift coverage required.
Duraflow will help employers meet the needs of workers across all demographics - with its low respiratory burden. As highlighted in Scott Safety’s latest whitepaper, changes in lung function in older employees working in manual positions can reduce their ability to undertake certain active tasks. By providing workers with a cooling stream of purified air, Duraflow can for some workers make the difference between whether a job can be completed or not.
Said to be highly versatile, Duraflow is compatible with a plethora of Scott Safety headtops, filters and accessories, protecting workers from a variety of environmental hazards.
